Honai Machinami in Yawatahama

A street of picturesque buildings from the Edo period

The Miyauchi River runs through the middle of Honai in Yawatahama, a little district that accumulated great wealth from trade and technology in the Edo to the Meiji periods. Vestiges of its glory remain in the form of picturesque old buildings, some of which are open to visitors. It’s pleasant to wander the quiet roads and lanes of Honai, seeing the buildings from different perspectives.
